Overview of the vitrified tiles market

According to the market research analysts at Technavio, the global vitrified tiles market is anticipated to witness steady growth and will post a CAGR of around 4% during the predicted period. A considerable growth in the construction sector is one of the major factors driving this market’s growth. Construction of both residential and non-residential buildings has a direct impact for vitrified tiles, as they are used to cover floors and walls of the buildings. They are frequently adopted as an alternative to marble and granite flooring. The population boom along with declining interest rates has propelled the housing market in various countries. Also, rising incomes from the economic growth have boosted the housing and construction market in various countries, which will, in turn, propel the growth of the vitrified tiles market over the coming years.

One of the recent trends gaining significant traction in the market is the increasing deployment of new technologies in manufacturing vitrified tiles. Most manufacturers are coming up with new technologies both in terms of the production process and new product features to stay ahead of the competition, owing to high demand and fierce competition. The vitrified tiles manufacturers are incorporating new and advanced technologies such as 3D printing, digital printing, anti-microbial glazes, nanotechnology, and water jet technology into their production processes. Digital printing technology helps in enhancing the colors of tiles, whereas anti-microbial technology is applied to tiles to reduce the bacterial growth on the surface of tiles. With the advent of smart homes various new innovative thermal tile solutions such as warmth generating, energy saving, and cooling tiles are being adopted, especially in the residential sector, which will contribute to this market’s growth during the predicted period.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The global vitrified tiles market is highly fragmented owing to the presence of several well-established and unorganized vendors. Vitrified tile manufacturers are investing heavily in new product development to produce exclusive designs based on consumer tastes and preferences, leading to intense competition among vendors. Also, the vendors are deploying new techniques like replacing oil-based fuels with LPG or natural gas to reduce the carbon footprint during the manufacturing process. Therefore, established manufacturers are setting new benchmarks for small vendors in terms of efficiency, quality, and design.
